pumpkins.
or make a tree out of branches, cut out some paper leaves (they probably sell these precut) and hnag from the tree.

I'm doing something like that I think.  I'm considering taking tiny craft clothespins, gluing to each one a wooden leaf cut out, using a gold pen to write the name and table number on the leaf, and then attaching the clothespins to branches in vases at the reception venue entrance.

Martha Stewart is probably the queen of place card holders.  You might check out some past issues of her magazines at the library.

This isn't very crafty, I guess, but I just got a new catalog in the mail.  It's Lakeside something (I'll find out the full name for you later).  They have forks that are bent to stand up and hold a placecard.  You could be really creative with your cards if you went with a simple stand.  The holders were 24 for $7.95.  That's cheap!!!

What I did for mine was I got some plaster of paris and mixed and poured it into soap molds. I put paperclips in them to act as an anchor because, after they were dry, I popped them out and painted them, then added a ribbon to them and got some generic placecards at Target that I printed everyones names on. I hole punched the corner and tied a bow at the top to hold it all together. A lot of people used them as Xmas ornaments after the wedding.

That's a cool idea but I think I'd have to anchor them somehow - the cards will be on a table in a hallway and I would hate to think of people's names flying everywhere!

If you want to go with a flat place card, you can take a page a la martha's book & keep them secured down with lengths of thick, sheer ribbon.

I made photo-holders for table decorations, but you can easily alter them into place card holders.

I took Fimo clay, shaped it into Hershey kiss shapes, shoved two lengths of craft wire into the top (you'd use one for a place card holder) and baked them.

Then I Printed out "Paul and Danielle - 2004" a billion times with blue ink on white paper, cut them apart into strips, and wrapped the kiss shapes with aluminum foil with one of the paper strips in each one (sticking out like a kiss). Then I used needlenose pliers and shaped each craft wire into a curlique, and put baby pictures of my husband and me in them. Our guests loved them!
